We had tried to find a motel that would take dogs in Napanee and we also wanted one that had some character. The Fox Motor Court or whatever it's called wouldn't take the dog but Helen, the owner of the Napanee Motel, agreed to try it ... she had said the last dog that stayed there peed on the bedspread. At any rate, within an hour she was in love with my dog and extended such friendship that we felt as if we were part of the family. The room was clean, the bed was pretty good and there was a fridge (always handy for travelers). However, we spent the evening sitting on the covered porch with Helen and a few other guests. Her garden at the front is beautiful and inviting and the back, where the pool is, is absolutely lovely. In the morning she offered us coffee before we left and we felt as if we were leaving a friend. All this for under $100.00. With only 8 units, this is more like a family gathering than a motel. If you're going to stay in the room instead of sampling the local culture or meeting the locals, then pay twice as much and go to a characterless "big box" type of accommodation like the Comfort Inn.
